We are extremely happy to announce that the brand new edition of our MOONWATCH ONLY book is now available.
The previous edition is sold out since a few months: that is the reason why we decided to publish a new one. But we didn’t want to publish again the same book.
Above all, many models have been marketed since 2017, date of the previous opus. But that did not seem enough either.
Our research on the various components is ongoing, thanks to the many collectors we are in contact with, and with the help of our friends at the OMEGA Museum. This allowed us to present updated information, mainly on vintage parts, but also on the very last models, for which OMEGA has introduced new features.
The extremely interesting chapter dedicated to personalized models has been enriched with new details, new models, and the story of the Plaisted Polar Expedition, written by Petros Protopapas.
A new chapter dedicated to the astronauts has been included, with a 16-page gallery and detailed descriptions, in collaboration with our friend Philip Corneille.
We have worked on the quality of the book, trying to improve pictures, making text corrections, updating models serial ranges and popularity indexes.
Last but not least, we have introduced a bit of technology with specific QR codes that allow the reader to access easily to detailed articles published on our website.
The following pictures are examples of new contents added in this 3rd Edition.
